Hand Knotted The Mughal Courtyard Carpet
Antique Mughal carpets were court art and as such they have a regal, palatial aura reminiscent of a bygone era of luxury and imperial grandeur. Emperor Shah Jahan was regarded as the father of Mughal rugs. He conquered vast areas, built the Taj Mahal and established the tradition of Mughal carpet weaving. The Pakistani city of Lahore, which was formerly part of the powerful Mughal Empire, was the dynasty’s first carpet-producing centre.
